“Hi FB Fam!

Peace be unto you all. I pray that each and every one of you are in excellent health and spirits today! 

I am here today to THANK YOU ALL once again for your continued support of me fighting for my sister Whitney & niece Bobbi Kristina. I know that Whitney and Krissi would also thank you ALL if they were here! Therefore, on their behalf, I sincerely appreciate, admire and respect you all for all of your continued support and kind words! 

Furthermore, I would humbly ask, when you hear something in the media that is negative about me, do not be fooled and take it as the one and only gospel and immediately think it is true, while making the mistake of judging me wrongfully. For it is no secret nor unusual that they are going to “try” to make me look as bad as they possibly can, simply because they indeed know that the truth is with me. 

I Thank God Almighty that I have the peace He gave to me. Which is, never worrying or allowing their evil doings to prevent me from sleeping well every night. Indeed, that is something that is difficult to do when a person knows that they are not speaking truth. However, that is not what is going on with Leolah. 

I am and will always be at peace with whatever I say out of my mouth, simply because I know that I will never speak anything other than the truth…inspite of their schemes and conspiracy to cover it up. The only ones who are ill effected are the ones who are guilty regardless of how it may seem, look or appear to anyone. Yes, always listen, yet keep quiet and remain humble when it comes to me because everyone is in for a great surprise! This Book will tell it all! The whole truth and nothing but (so help me God)!

With all that has happened, I am sure everyone has questions and concerns regarding Whitney and Bobbi Kriss’s death and murder. AND I DON’T BLAME YOU. If it be the “WILL” of The Almighty God, MY BOOK WILL ANSWER “every” single question that has come up in your minds concerning what REALLY happened and took place with my sister and niece. All of the why’s and the why not’s will also be answered as well. From the very beginning to the very end. I promise you will have it asap (if it is the will of God)! And after you read it, you will have to ask no more!

Please be patient and look forward to “ALL THE TRUTH” coming from Leolah’s mouth..

Thank you guys so very much for being such kind & great supportive and wise human beings. YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST! 




Roc Nation Launches $2.3 Million Counter Suit Against Rita Ora

After signing a five album contract with Roc Nation in 2008 Rita Ora filed a lawsuit against the label in December 2015, citing to have been ‘orphaned’ due to the label’s other huskiness endeavours. 

Jay Z called the singer – songwriter after the lawsuit was filed and agreed to relieve Ora from her contract. However, the rapper turned businessman filed a counter suit of $2.3 million, which according to Roc Nation, was invested in marketing her sophomore album. 

“Roc Nation’s market and recording costs, to date, for Ms. Ora’s still incomplete second album are not less than $2, 353, 500,” the lawsuit states.

The complaint, which was filed in a L.A. Superior Court, states: “When Rita signed, Roc Nation and its senior executives were very involved with her as an interest. 

“As Roc Nation’s interests diversified, there were fewer resources available, and the company suffered a revolving door of executives. Rita’s remaining supporters at the label left or moved on to other activities, to the point where she no longer had a relationship with anyone at the company.” 

Ora’s lawyer, Howard King, told The New York Daily News, he hopes to reach a settlement prior to the April 19 hearing deadline.

Taking to Daily News Monday, King said, “I think we’re just going to resolved  this. He said he’s happy to let her go. He called her the day after he filed and graciously said she didn’t need to file.

“I’m paraphrasing, but he said, ‘if you want off the label, we’ll let you go.'”

The lawyer also claims to believe Roc Nation’s new counter – lawsuit was filed ‘reluctantly’.

Katrina Kaif Dismisses Rumours About Her Red Hair Costing Rs 55 Lakh For Fitoor

Katrina Kaif has dismissed reports that it cost Rs. 55 Lakh to colour her hair red for her forthcoming film, Fitoor. She stated, “it’s not even possible.” 

Talking to IANS in a telephone interview from Mumbai, the actress clarified, “I don’t even think that’s possible, even if you want to… It is all a kind of slightly sensationalised piece of news that comes out and gets highlighted, which more often than not turns out to be baseless.”

Regarding the style of her hair colour in the film, Kaif said it was the director Abhishek Kapoor’s idea, “This was an idea which Abhishek had. The thought behind it was when the leaves fall in Kashmir and the whole ground turns red… It was a symbolic connection as the colour red signifies passion, love and fire.”

Kaif who recently launched L’Oreal Paris’ new La Vie En Rose signature collection, also added, “We took a lot of pictures and a lot of discussion and once we had locked in on the hair colour, and then just took one day to do it and shot the whole film in three to four months. Then I dyed the colour back, and it was black again.”

Kaif also issued a statement denying the fabricated stories around her ‘multi – million hair colour’ which according to some media outlets, pointed out the money could have been used to fund education. 

“The wonderful thing about being an actor is that people are interested in what you do. But there are also lots of misleading and untrue articles that also come out. And because I am not on any social media platform yet, I don’t have the chance to contradict every rumour.

“The team who worked on my hair, did a great job. It was a great idea put forward by Abhishek. As kind and wonderful that our producers are, I don’t think they are that kind. I don’t think I would have been very nervous had Abhishek not been very confident in supporting me.”

Filmmaker Kapoor has also runniahed aside the rumours. 

In a statement of his own, Kapoor said, ”

“I can’t help but smile when I read these speculative reports of money spent on Katrina’s hair. They are outrageous. But what’s important is Katrina and Tabu (who also sports red hair) both look amazing and in my humble opinion, their hair even more so. So let’s just compliment the ladies.” 

Fitoor is an adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic novel, Great Expectations. Kaif will play Firdaus while Adaitya Roy Kaput will portray the character of Noor.

The film also casts Aditi Rao Hydari, Lara Dutta and Rahul Bhatt. Fitoor will hit the theatres on February 12.

Priyanka Chopra Talks About Playing Kashibai

Priyanka Chopra

In an exclusive interview with, Priyanka Chopra spoke of her latest role, playing Kashibai in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani. The film which has garnered much attention has received exceptional recognition from fans and film critics alike.

The actress expressed her thoughts upon playing the pivotal role, revealing that she wouldn’t have agreed to the decisions Kashibai makes regarding Bajirao’s relationship with Mastani.

“To play a character that I don’t agree with, as a woman if my husband fell in love with someone else I would say thank you very much, goodbye! I am out! Kashi did that in her own way also, she said I love you enough to see you happy, if you are happy with her please go just don’t come back to my door, which at that time was a big deal. Kashi was forogtten in history , nobody talks about her, nobody knows of her, because Bajirao and Mastani’s story is so forbidden and so epic, and hats off to Sanjay sir for giving her such a strong voice.”

Priyanka went on to discuss, her belief in Bhansali’s cinematic creation of films was what made her determined to play the role even more, despite the director assuming she wouldn’t have accepted it.

“I always knew Kashi was an amazing role, I was the first person to be cast for the film. I remember when I was doing Mary Kom, Sanjay sir said she won’t do it, and we discussed it. For me what was wonderful about Kashi was that am a greedy Sanjay Bhansali fan, am a believer in his world and cinema. I can talk to him for hours about films and his acute understanding of human emotions and that is what Kashi was for me. I used to look forward to coming on the set all dressed up as Kashi. He throws googlys, and am an actor who loves hitting a six when its thrown at me.”

Recounting how she undertook to play Kashibai, Priyanka explained, “My instincts come on, am not a prep or a method actor, I have always been very instinctive. He has such a beautiful understanding of silences and Kashi has no words, so silences were all that I had, my eyes and face, it was like Jhilmil, there wasn’t much she could say it was the 1700′s, so it was a welcome challenge.”
